URBAN-15’s Holiday Laser Show


2018 marks the 15th annual Holiday Laser Show, a multimedia spectacular of choreographed laser beams, animation and light effects performed to holiday music favorites, including “Carol of the Bells,” “Feliz Navidad” and  “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.” A family-oriented show with colorful 3-D animation and a stunning aerial beam display, the Holiday Laser Show is one the most exciting holiday celebrations in San Antonio!

On September 4, 2018, The URBAN-15 Group will begin accepting reservations from elementary schools in San Antonio and Bexar County for our four free student showings of the 2018 Holiday Laser Show.

These shows will take place at the beautiful Lila Cockrell Theater (200 E. Market St, San Antonio, TX 78205) on the following days/times:


  • Monday, December 3rd at 9:45am
  • Monday, December 3rd at 11:30am
  • Tuesday, December 4th and 9:45am
  • Tuesday, December 4th at 11:30am


  • Sunday, December 2nd at 4:00pm

Admission to student shows is free, but all schools will need to arrange their own transportation.

While the Holiday Laser Show presents an entertaining array of light, color, and sound, there are also numerous scientific and mathematical principles involved in creating this spectacle. In the past, we have been able to provide teachers with supplemental materials to add an educational component to the event, and to highlight links between science, math, and the arts via concepts such as refraction, reflection, angles, symmetry, magnification, and others. Many schools have also used the show as an incentive for perfect attendance.

Other notable presentations include the opening ceremonies of the Texas Sesquicentennial in 1986 at the State Capitol; the World Empathy Conference in Guadalajara, Mexico; and the 2008-2012 LUMINARIA celebrations in San Antonio.
